2007 Book Guide

Last year around this time I began what I suppose is about to become a tradition—I made up a book guide to help people choose books to buy others for Christmas (or, of course, just to buy for themselves). As you know, I read and review a lot of books, usually around 100 per year. I have been pleased to find that others are able to benefit from my love of reading through these reviews. It has always been my purpose to help put good books in the hands of believers while helping them avoid ones that just aren’t worth reading. On occasion I’ve been told that people have difficulty navigating the large number of reviews on my blog. To alleviate that problem, I have created a mini-site in which I will list only books I recommend (I will not list books I do not recommend). I have shared my recommendations in a variety of categories. I hope and trust you will find this beneficial.

If you are after even more reviews, you could always visit my other site, Discerning Reader. Their you’ll find these reviews as well as ones written by some other talented reviewers.
